"I have a background in a number of disciplines and have successfully treated clients using Hypnotherapy, Gestalt Therapy, Voice Dialogue and Art Therapy.

Being an ex-addict, I'm comfortable with the addictive personality and I have a comprehensive knowledge of the 12-step programs. I have experience coordinating with social workers and psychiatrists. While interning I worked at an adolescent group home which proves useful in children and adolescents."

"Anxiety, sadness, anger, regret are natural and human, but when one is stuck thinking and feeling these ways, something is wrong. If you are stuck, repeating the same kinds of experiences, or if there has been an unmanageable disruption in your life, I have been in practice helping people in similar situations for more than 20 years. Through talking and thinking together to deeply understand your experience, we discover and create new ways for you to think and act in the world. Your sense of self and of life expand, opening up space in which to move, breathe and grow."

"I focus on what the individual or couple would like to work on. I believe that the individual or couple knows a lot of what they need to know to heal, feel better, grow, and/or deal with the issue or problem. It is my job to help them access the hope, belief, and skills they may need to cope with the issues at hand. I learn what their strengths are and we build on them together. Issues around ethnic/racial identity, parenting, relationships, and the unique experience of being an adult child of an immigrant parent(s), are at the forefront of my practice."

"Life moves so quickly these days, it's hard to take the time to really think about who we are and how we are living. Often, it takes years of patterns that are hurtful or self-destructive to wonder why we aren't feeling happy or fulfilled. Psychotherapy can provide the time and space to really understand and experience ourselves in a new way. I will listen with curiosity and warmth and will collaborate with you to help effect positive change in your life and relationships."

As such, I avoid diagnostic labels and preconceptions, approaching each client as a unique individual and tailoring my work to fit his or her evolving needs in developing a better relationship with both inner and outer worlds. Although my preference is to work in depth with long-term clients, I am also comfortable with those seeking short-term work on specific issues--especially couples (straight, gay, or lesbian), with whom I do both premarital and separation counseling, and parent-child and sibling dyads."

"When we find ourselves struggling with the kind of emotional pain that our usual strategies and supports can't relieve, good therapy is a lifeline. Like massage for physical injuries, psychotherapy effectively relieves chronic emotional pain, clears out unwanted emotional scar tissue, and creates flexibility, strength and new possibilities for positive motion in our lives. Whether you are worried about your own mental health, or the distress of someone you love, or are simply curious about how therapy might help, call/email me to schedule an initial conversation to talk about what kind of treatment is best for you."

"Is your inner critic robbing you of ease and confidence? Unrelenting worrying and beating yourself up can be exhausting and hard to transform without powerful tools. I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), the 'gold standard' treatment for anxiety and low self-esteem. CBT is a hands-on, solution-focused approach that offers concrete practices to powerfully shift the way you think, feel and act. When you uncover and transform the negative thoughts, distortions and self-defeating beliefs that have been keeping you stuck, new ways of seeing yourself and the world emerge. Vitality and ease naturally become possible. "

"I believe that healing occurs in a safe space with a trusted other. People seek out therapy for different reasons and often these reasons are hard to talk about. Maybe you are wrestling with painful memories from your past, maybe you find it difficult to have satisfying relationships, maybe you are experiencing anxiety and depression, or, perhaps, you are having difficulty coping with a loss or connecting with your child. It can be quite helpful to explore these issues and trace back their roots; processing, exploring, and being curious about feelings and beliefs that may come up along the way."
